|A Tough Nut to Crack|
|Task||Help Jared get into the store.|
A Tough Nut to Crack is a side quest given to the Hero by Jared Miles in Dead Island. It can be found roughly one block to the west of the Sewer Entrance that Joseph led the player to -- or, in other words, near the water tower in the Old Town section of Moresby.
The Hero must help Jared and his friend Thomas break into a weapons shop. Upon entering the shop, the Hero finds a large cache of weapons. Once the door is unlocked for Jared and Thomas, the alarm goes off, attracting a group of zombies. After the zombies are dealt with, Jared offers the Hero a reward.
- Jared and Thomas only appear upon reaching Act III, when the Hero returns to Moresby in order to get the boat supplies.
- The Shock Shotgun Mod is located on a shelf in the back room during this quest.
- If the Player returns later on, Jared and Thomas will be gone.
